A mounting system with mating parts. Permanently mount one half, and screw in the other half for a removable framing system.


The tallest piece mounts to a surface/object (via epoxy or 4-40 screw).
The second piece (triangle with ears), mates with the larger piece.

Mount any object to the second piece with a screw and you can firmly attach/detach your object to the mounted outer frame. The friction fit is pretty tight (.5mm offset on female groove), so print one and play with it to see how many you think you need.

The third (flattest) piece is an optional cap, to keep the assembly from being pushed out from the opposite side.
